Let’s go to the Alternatives and the Hybrids
Petrol-electric hybrid vehicles are those types that run on combination petrol engines and an electric motor powered by an energy storage device such as a battery pack. At Low speeds, the electric motors is in the works but when better performance is need for speed the petrol engine kicks in. The battery packs can be recharged by the use of regenerative braking, your batteries charge when your driving and braking making it more efficient and have lower CO2 emissions.
Electric cars types that use battery and electric motor to power the vehicle, hence the name. They have Zero Emissions, but the drawback is they have limits between recharging the batteries, some have a distance of 30-50 and some can go as much as 60 miles per charge.
Solar power, very good alternative for charging of electric vehicles and powering certain Hybrid cars and on the plus side it’s not a pollutant because of the use of the sun’s energy and convert it to electrical energy to power the batteries and electrical systems of a car.
